Tribute® Essential K®

Complete Feed

Nourish your equine friend with superior-quality nutrition by feeding her Tribute Essential K Horse Feed! This pelleted horse feed is designed and approved by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionists to balance rations for idle, growing and performance horses. The low feeding rate also results in low non-structural carbohydrates (NSC), which may be beneficial for hyperactive horses or those with insulin resistance, laminitis, obesity or tying-up issues. These healthy horse pellets are also formulated with Equi-Ferm XL microencapsulated active dry yeast that acts as a prebiotic and probiotic to improve your pal’s overall gut health!

Available in 50 lb bags at The Equity Farm & Home Store in Effingham, IL
